A game that helps students compare and add numbers written in place value form. It reviews the following Common Core Standards:
CCSS.Math.Content.4.NBT.A.1 Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right. For example, recognize that 700 ÷ 70 = 10 by applying concepts of place value and division.
CCSS.Math.Content.4.NBT.A.2 Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
CCSS.Math.Content.4.NBT.B.4 Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
The game is played just like "War" except for cards are written in place value form. Students have to convert numbers from place value form to standard form and then decide who has the larger number. For an added challenge, students can take 2 cards and add them together and decide who has the larger sum.
I have included 2 accountability sheets so you can track your students' progress and accuracy while they play a fun and engaging game.
This game is a great review for state testing at the end of the year!
